P63 - FABULOUS ORCHESTRA IN ANTHROPOMORPHIC CYRTOIDEA - 2006. / Painting Acrylic / 120 x 120 cm - 47 x 47 inches - Canvas stretcher bilobed / 18500 USD

Description: ART GALLERY / Text translated by Google / Amazed by the beauty of radiolarians, I had always promised to one day use their complex form and aesthetic jewel glass miniature. A variety of Radiolaria, the cyrtoidea reproduced by the biologist Ernst Haeckel in his edition of 1899-1904, entitled "Kunstformen der Natur" will decide this table. This is to accommodate my little musicians in a bandstand worthy of their eccentricity that I chose this natural wonder. It is with great sorrow that I am forced to simplify it by detaching it from the top, and finally with anamorphic. Two operations required to bring it into harmony with my little anthropomorphic creatures. Let us turn to medieval texts, particularly those from the fourteenth century, to admire their borders bursting with illuminations. The artist emerges more often linger on the margins for these strange creatures, devils, monsters comic aspects profane, sometimes even trivial. We forget today that they have almost always a meaning: teasing, arguments or warning (a forgotten character biting an animal with it the sins of the flesh, if they ate meat!). All musical instruments, even whimsical, jokes are authentic vintage. Note the clear separation between the feminine and masculine. Radiolaria: elements of a class of marine protozoa in plankton bio. These animals are between 1-5 mm ( 0,04-0,2 inches), rarely more! They have a siliceous skeleton, which is not visible externally. It is intimately included in the cytoplasm, to find out, just destroy the soft tissue, appears extraordinary architecture that only nature can create in such beauty. The accumulation of thousands of dead radiolarian eventually lead to a rock called "radiolarian".

In actual fact, I want to tell you without misrepresentation, the whole story of Philhelm, which begins in Alsace (It was still a Germanic country and will become French only in 1678!) in the castle of Lichtenberg, on April 23rd 1616, when the seven-year-old Balthasar Helmlinger, loses the Monogram of his eponymy descendant. This ordinary but nevertheless very serious incident in the distant past will set in motion the artistic calling of one of his descendants, ten generations later! This contemporary painter, born in Strasbourg in 1943, has only exhibited his work twice in his life (1999 and 2001) and only at the "International Biennial Event of Contemporary Art of Florence" which awarded him in 1999 the Prize of the City of Florence. So that the ordinary people be completely disorientated, so that it will let the story of the past enter him torpidly, by going back the furthermost possible or else it will never pierce the heart of his paintings, to seek there the secret causes of things.
Philhelm declines the colors in a correspondence with the images and original writings to a small history of the past, in wich his monogram was always present as an archetype. This revival for a few years, he has tried to reveal it because the Gods came one day to its meeting ! They deigned to present him their messengers like a hero accompanied with their sphinges : Let them forgive him, if he dares to quote them in the enjoyement of his heart, even if he put no bad shame to ask them for grace. If he tries to make reappear by its legends, some bits of a lost knowledge, and really immortal and sacred, he owes it only with work of fort many archaeologists and historians. He makes no vanity of his work. If he had his whole life, believe not produce anything good and beautiful, he feels no less real joy and deep taste that he recognizes and admires beautiful and great at others, had they been Etruscan, Cretan, Assyrian or Sumerian ?
